During her 30-year career, Shireen Francis has performed at venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, the Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. Shireen Francis is a warm and soulful performer who continually takes her audiences into a new dimension. 


Born in London of Jamaican and Goan Heritage, Shireen learned her craft in Afro-Caribbean music but in recent years her jazz singing inspired by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Nancy Wilson has led her in a different direction including writing her own material.
